Happy National Quilting Day
So, they didn't win this year and they don't get to go on to the championships. My son was nominated for a huge scholarship and was up against the teacher's daughter. She won, he lost. He was really excited for her. She gets to go on to the championship in St. Louis. He came in 3rd place. The top 2 kids got to go on. Not sure what is worse, losing or coming in 3rd and being so close to winning. Oh, well it was a good experience for him to go through the interview process. The girl who got 1st place did the robotics with kids at the Shriner's hospital. There's just no way to compete with something like that. He's just really proud of all of the work he's done with the robotics program and how much he's learned.
I'm going to see if now that robotics season is over, my son will invent a robotic binding machine. Surely he could come up with something that you put the quilt in, it finds the edge and automatically puts the binding on. Who would buy that? I totally would! How hard would that be to invent? Who needs a scholarship when you could invent something and make a million dollars? I'm telling you I'm full of great ideas for things for him to invent. Of course he needs to be studying for his AP tests. That is after he catches up on his sleep.
